I run the Tiddlers group at my church. It is a toddler play group. Sort of a place for Moms to bring their kids to play while they chat with other moms and have a coffee or tea. (though we have several Grans and Dads who bring their kids) One of my responsibilities is to ensure that all of the ladies that voluteer get a small gift for Christmas. The hard part is finding a small gift that isn't junk.
When Jo posted the link to the Pie in a Jar tutorial on Facebook I thought I would try that. Until I found the peppermint-fudge-cupcakes-in-a-jar link on her site. YUMMY! It was all fairly easy. The only tricky part for me was that mine rose a bit (as you can see from the picture). Not sure why this happened as hers stayed nice and flat. It worked out okay because I just dug a little well at the top to pour the ganache into. They were really lovely and I think the ladies were happy with them. I highly recommend trying it. I think we may make another batch to bring to our neighbors. And the icing is fabulous! Here is the LINK.
